EU LED energy efficiency requirements are 2.2 times that of China's standard

Since the beginning of this month, the EU's "Energy Efficiency Regulations for LED Lighting Products" has come into effect, requiring all LED lighting products exported to Europe to comply with new energy efficiency standards, and gradually improve the energy efficiency standards of LED lighting products in three phases in the next three years. Yesterday, the reporter learned in an interview that for many LED lighting export enterprises in our city, this new regulation means that the production cost will increase by about 20%. Under such circumstances, many companies intend to switch to the domestic market.
The reporter learned that according to the EU's latest energy efficiency regulations for LED lighting products, LED lighting products without energy efficiency labels will not be available in the EU market starting from September 1 this year. In order to obtain the label, relevant test technical documents must be provided to support it. At the same time, the EU will also take samples for inspection and verification in the market supervision and spot check enforcement.
In addition, the EU will gradually improve LED energy efficiency standards in three phases: September 1, 2013, September 1, 2014 and September 1, 2016. Among them, after September 1, 2014, LED lights with an energy efficiency index above 0.2 can enter the EU market. This standard is 2.2 times the current implementation standard in China.
Nearly one hundred enterprises have exported their products according to the previous requirements, and most of the export enterprises can reach the standard. However, after the new regulations come into effect, many companies will need to invest more to improve the energy efficiency of their products. Yesterday, the person in charge of Chongqing LED Lighting R&D and Industry Alliance, Qinqin, said in an interview with the Commercial Daily that there are nearly 200 LED companies in Chongqing, accounting for 50% of the export business. The market is mainly concentrated in the EU, Japan and Southeast Asian countries. . The Commercial Daily reporter learned from Chongqing Customs that the annual export volume of lamps and lighting fixtures in our city reached 1.31 billion U.S. dollars, a year-on-year increase of 20.6 times.
The above-mentioned person in charge of the Qin name told the Commercial Daily reporter that most of the LED enterprises in the city are small and medium-sized enterprises, many of which are engaged in OEM processing, and the core technology is still in the hands of foreign manufacturers. Large enterprises can get orders based on the advantages of technology, resources and capital, and SMEs are relatively difficult. After the new regulations came into effect, the LED industry is polarized or more obvious.
The impact of rising production costs on some companies may not affect us too much. For the new EU regulations, Yesterday, the largest lighting company in China, NVC lighting public relations department told the Commercial Daily reporter that the company has established a complete production base and sales team in the UK, and recently signed a contract with French distributors to fully enter France. market. It is understood that NVC will accelerate the expansion of overseas markets and expand into emerging markets such as India, Brazil, the Middle East and Africa.
Li Wei, the person in charge of overseas sales of Chongqing Tianhai Medical Equipment Co., Ltd., told the reporter that with the technology of medical LED chips, in recent years, the company has gradually begun to develop commercial fields, research and development of excellent temperature-adjustable LED street lamps, 48 ​​concentrated in the EU market. .
Li Wei said that after the new regulations come into effect, the certification and spot check fees for each specification product will be above 10,000 yuan to meet the standard, which will directly lead to the increase of the production cost of LED lamps by more than 20, because enterprises need to purchase according to the new standards. Raw materials. If the rising cost is transferred to the customer and the price advantage is lost, it will cause more difficulties for the already depressed export. Li Wei said.
Zhang Bo, general manager of Chongqing Duoduo Lighting Co., Ltd. told the Commercial Daily that in the case of increasingly high export technology thresholds and increasing domestic LED demand, moving to domestic sales may be one of the short-term responses. At present, the company intends to reduce its export business, focusing on the markets of the three northeastern provinces.
Zhang Bo said: Now that the cost of export is high and the profit is reduced, you can do a good job in the domestic market first, and then attack the foreign market after the strength is mature.
Earlier, Chen Hao, president of the Chongqing Municipal Council for the Promotion of International Trade, said in an interview with the Commercial Daily that as more and more Chongqing made its way into the international market, various technical barriers faced also faced. In the short term, this may cause some SMEs to face a period of pain, but in the long run, it can make technological advances in the entire industry and raise industry standards.
